Donnelley Financial Solutions Awarded Data Quality Committee Certification for XBRL


Recognition highlights Donnelley Financial's leadership in the
evolution of digital compliance

Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE:DFIN), a leading provider of risk
and compliance solutions, today announced that the company was awarded
certification for the XBRL US Data Quality Committee (DQC) 6th rule set.

"RegTech and AI are driving the evolution of compliance and analysis,
and we're proud to be recognized as a leader in that evolution," said
Craig Clay, president of Global Capital Markets at Donnelley Financial
Solutions. "Donnelley Financial is supporting this evolution with our
ActiveDisclosure, compliance filing solution, and data analysis tools,
that are designed to streamline compliance while providing the highest
level of quality."

Donnelley Financial was a founding member the XBRL US Center for Data
Quality. XBRL US, a not-for-profit organization focused on maximizing
the quality of XBRL data, and an alliance of member companies, formed
the Center to address concerns about, and to improve the utility of,
XBRL financial data filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC). The 6th rule set includes validation checks for
filings prepared using the US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy and the
International Financial Accounting Standards (IFRS) Taxonomy.

The DQC certifications provide assurance and confidence to clients that
Donnelley Financial's XBRL rules validation delivers the highest level
of accuracy and testing available today. The DQC's guidance and
validation rules were developed to help prevent or detect
inconsistencies or errors in XBRL data filed with the SEC, and focuses
on data quality issues that adversely impact data analysis.

Craig Clay serves on the board of the Data Coalition and the Data
Foundation, which are focused on policy and rule changes needed to
deliver high quality standardized data to regulators and markets.

Fulfilling one of the Data Coalitions main policy initiatives, the SEC
recently announced the adoption of Inline XBRL, for operating companies'
financial statement information and risk/return summary information.
Inline XBRL, which allows structured data XBRL tags to be included
behind the scenes in HTML format, is intended to streamline reporting
while improving the quality and accessibility of XBRL data.

Donnelley Financial is ready to support SEC Inline XBRL, beginning this
fall with a comprehensive series of client educations programs, designed
to meet the first mandated filing for Q2 2019.
